TRAVEL IN THE NETHERLANDS

It's funny to think that this small, low-lying and almost completely flat country in northern Europe has had such an enormous impact on world culture. But then, this is the land that gave the world masters like Vermeer, Rembrandt and Van Gogh, and gave the names to places like New York, Brooklyn and Harlem.

Today’s Netherlands is a land of friendly and laidback locals, charming cities and beautiful waterways. It could just become your new favourite travel destination.

WHAT TO PACK?

what-to-pack
A GPS enabled phone - Amsterdam is a warren of confusing streets and it's incredibly easy to get lost here. Load up your map of the city on the hotel wifi to avoid those roaming charges.

Bicycle clips - This is a country to explore on foot, or - like the locals - on two wheels. Don't let your trousers get tangled up in the cranks.

An umbrella - Summer weather in Holland is typically warm and sunny, but you never really know here. It pays to be prepared for showers!

A backpack - Where else are you going to store your umbrella? Throw in a waterproof jacket for good measure.

Sensible walking shoes - Barcelona and Seville in particular have a number of cobbled streets. Ladies don’t be caught out struggling in high heels!

An adapter plug - The Netherlands uses the European standard 2-pin plug.
